The Ninth Inauguration of Endowed Professorships

This year, we celebrated the establishment of eight new Professorships from the Faculties of Architecture, Education and Medicine, as well as a Distinguished Visiting Professorship in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

A total of 88 Endowed Professorships have been established since 2005. Each of these gifts came with a story, and a dream.
